That's what happens when you create an artificial border which divides farms in two & even parishes, not to mention friends and members of the same family, as happened in Ireland. On the continent there are a lot of natural borders, such as wide rivers, lakes and mountain ranges, meaning that there were always fewer crossing points. Partition was always a bad idea here.
Here's a border crossing (I can't embed).
How do you police that?
